- AZOLLA exemplifies Matsunotsukasa's approach to its raw material, sake rice. Born from our gratitude towards our surroundings in the rural village of Ryuou in Shiga Prefecture and our commitment to the environment, this organic junmai ginjo uses only Yamadanishiki rice grown by our contract farmers in healthy fields (with no agricultural chemicals or synthetic fertiliser used during the growing season).
"No agricultural chemicals or synthetic fertilisers" is easy to say, but only possible with the long hours and painstaking effort that our contract farmers put into raising their crop.
This sake releases a burst of aroma in the mouth, while the beautifully rounded, fine and delicate flavour still brings through the strength of the original rice. Please enjoy the flavour of the people and land of Ryuou, given shape and depth by the brewing traditions handed down here.
Note: Azolla is the scientific name of a water fern that grows in rice fields and lakes. It completely covers the surface of the water, starving other plants of light and keeping weeds under control without the need for chemical agents.
